Elegant Five Bedroom Victorian Home With Contemporary Additions and Generous Garden - CHAIN FREE.

This noteworthy, double-fronted Victorian home is defined by its handsome, symmetrical rooms, high ceilings and deftly designed contemporary additions. Marrying period charm with modern ingenuity, the property spans three tasteful floors, each as delightful as the last. The accommodation comprises five proper double bedrooms (master en suite), two particularly fancy reception rooms and a separate lounge which adjoins the expansive kitchen/diner. There's a pretty, period style bathroom, modern shower room and handy storage cellar too - think of the vino! Expertly chosen décor runs sympathetically throughout and you’ll spy handsome, original features in abundance - period fireplaces, decorative ceiling roses, cornicing and vast sash windows (some avec shutters). The masterfully executed kitchen extension allows for lavish gatherings and comfortable family living, sitting elegantly into the original structure. The top floor, also a seamless modern addition, is the jewel in the crown. The rear garden runs 60ft long and is even wider than the house. It's a generous, leafy oasis with healthy lawn and show-stopping tree house! If the kids aren't fond of it, the adults will be. A side access point aids bike and bin storage. Talfourd Road, originally built as a show road, has an inimitably eclectic mix of period architecture. It rises gently from Peckham Road to Lyndhust Grove and sits within a pleasurable five minute ramble of bountiful Bellenden Village. Transport is a cinch with Peckham Rye Station a seven minute stroll for swift, regular services to London Bridge, Victoria, Elephant and Castle, Blackfriars, Farringdon, Shoreditch and oodles more.

The house is sheltered from the street behind a paved front garden with mature Magnolia and Cherry Blossom trees. An original front door sits within a proud arched portico with stained-glass fanlight. Dulcet Farrow and Ball shades grace the window surrounds and stucco work. Stepping inside the wide and welcoming hallway you find a grand original staircase with curving handrail. To your left is a formal reception room with ornate cornicing and more fab Farrow and Ball shades. The front-facing sash window dons its original shutters and there's a fireplace with marble mantle and open hearth. French doors open rear to the patio and garden. To the far side of the entrance hall sits another reception room which connects, through sliding doors, to a further seating area with a wood burning stove and bespoke floor to ceiling storage points. This adjoins the utterly marvellous kitchen extension which affords endless dining, cooking and entertaining potential. Topped in Honed Granite, a generous island is bathed in overhead daylight and supplies plenty of space for dicing, slicing and spicing. Appliances include a five ring gas hob, integrated dishwasher and an American style fridge/freezer. A Quooker boiling water tap makes for an easy cuppa. Polished concrete flooring runs throughout, as does thoughtful lighting and crisp styling. A table fit for a banquet will sit handsomely by huge glass sliding doors and there's a large window seat framing gorgeous garden views.

Nipping back to the rear of the entrance hall you meet a neat wc with laundry cupboard. The storage cellar is accessed under the staircase. Whilst low in head height, it will store any amount of whatnot. The main bathroom sits on the rear return and enjoys a pretty period finish. Wonderfully recrafted embossed wallpaper (sourced from the original supplier) rises to dado level. There's a period roll top bath, school house radiator and a charming antique wash stand with matching taps. Upward to the first floor you find a master suite comprising a sizeable slumber space, dressing area and an adjoining en suite bathroom. Fitted wardrobes and a period feature fireplace continue the beguilement. The far side of the hall has two further double bedrooms, the front-facing of which has a period feature fireplace and a pleasant streetscape. The rear room has a bright disposition and more lovely garden views. Upward once more finds you on an airy second landing which leads to two further double bedrooms (each with eaves storage). A central shower room completes the tour. Read More

For coffee, croissants, books, antiques, flowers and dry cleaning services, go no further than Bellenden Village (a 3 minute walk). We love Petitou, The Victoria Inn, Ganapati and The Begging Bowl. The South London Gallery Cafe is great for impressing visitors with! Rye Lane is tantalisingly close for any amount of culture. The Bussey Building has some fab rooftop bars and even a cinema! The highly considered Villa Nursery is as close - now that's an easy morning drop off! The area has easy access to Peckham Rye (zone 2 and a brisk 5 minute walk) and Denmark Hill stations (also zone 2 and about a 12 minute walk away) for services to London Bridge, Victoria and Blackfriars. The London Overground whizzes you to Clapham, Shoreditch and Canada Water for the Jubilee Line. A whole variety of buses run into town along Peckham Road, just five minutes away. The wide open green spaces of Peckham Rye Park are also within easy reach. Even closer is the very lovely Warwick Gardens. It's a fine spot for a read of the papers. Read Less
